The HopkinToon: The Elmwood Question

  1. We refurbished the school in 2006 and there is still asbestos and a failing HVAC system? Hopkinton has a long history of financial issues from inadequate controls and reporting to spending money foolishly to not spending money when the decision is obviously to spend a little to save ALOT. As a 30+ year resident, why can’t we seem to fix the common issue which is fiscal control? We’ve seen articles recently that we spend more in uncontrolled water costs/lost revenue than it would cost to fix the issue. We are in jeopardy of spending more than we are legally allowed and on and on! Is no one paying attention or are “we” just assuming Hopkinton is rich so who cares?

  2. “At a meeting last night, Select Board member Shahidul Mannan told me he had suggested childcare in the past, but it fell on deaf ears. “I was the lone voice,” he said. Town Clerk Connor Degan has also tried to move ahead on this and indicated that the process had stalled.”

    Based on this, it is fair to assume that the Select Board is aware of the issue and wants to keep the status quo, intentionally. I believe that is at being close-minded at best, and unempathetic at worst. There are more sinister interpretations, but without further statement or information, those interpretations are probably unfair.

  3. What about the property behind the town hall That the town approved at town meeting for purchase so a parking lot could be built for the town employees. We were told the building would be torn down. Instead it is being used for town parks and recreation and has two or three people working in it.
